After studying some simple machines, the kindergarteners learned about Rube Goldberg. They got to try out their own silly invention to do something simple using a ramp and swing.
Goldberg's "name is an eponym for his famed “invention drawings,” designs of overly complicated machines: using things like pulleys, levers, birds, and rockets to fix simple problems like fishing an olive out of a tall jar, or remembering to mail a letter to your wife. Goldberg approached them as a tongue-in-cheek critique of the havoc wrought by industrialization and put forward the idea that technology, intended to simplify people’s lives could have the opposite effect."

Even though our elementary students may have seen their teachers in Zoom classroom sessions, face-to-face interactions are what we all crave. PCS elementary teachers organized an end of the year parade for all students and classroom teachers to say goodbye in person. It was an opportunity for our students, families and teachers to celebrate finishing the year strong together and completing distance learning. The parade started in the school circle drive, through the school parking lot, and then a block away through a church parking lot and down to a public elementary school parking lot.
The message was united between families and teachers: "thank you, thank you, thank you, we love our teachers, we love our students, and have a good summer!"
